These choices do not apply to the display of online advertising or the receipt of mandatory service communications that are considered part of certain services provided by VJS Lincoln, Inc., which you may receive periodically unless you cancel the service.

Because, however, no security system can be perfect or impregnable, we do not and cannot guaranty the security of data or information. The limitations of liability set forth above apply, for avoidance of doubt, to any disclosure of information not otherwise protected by law or separate contract.
